SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Fundraisers and Educational Foundations
As school begins, schools and school districts may share of their efforts to raise money toward their yearly initiatives. Sharing with families these initiatives is a means of engaging and involving parents and the community into improving student learning. School supplies and back-to-school shopping are certainly a contribution to your child and their classroom. Along those efforts, the donation of books to a classroom or grade level, writing supplies such as paper and pencils or just the simple paper towels or Kleenex. Other initiatives, such as adding technology to the library or classroom, a community garden or improvements to the fields or gymnasium are all efforts to make students enjoy their school experience. Consider getting involved – volunteering or donations – to your child’s school and/or district. Your child will benefit from your involvement.
